Gianluca Vialli, the former Italy and Chelsea striker, has died aged 58 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.

Qazet.az reports according to foreign media that Vialli was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2017 and then for a second time in 2021, shortly after Italy's Euro 2020 triumph.

He left his role with Italy in December, citing his need to undergo treatment for the disease.
